Double fair weekend

Argh! I can't keep up, I have found so much great stuff this week - I am drowning in stock!  My flat looks like I am turning into one of those hoarders that can't move for stuff... Well I hope to get it all sorted and photographed for next week.  I'll be blogging the items (I have some amazing furniture and bit & bobs) and I'll hopefully be able to get them added to the website too. 

Meanwhile, I'll be busy tonight watching The Apprentice on iplayer and pricing up lots of fab new summer/floral/print dresses and playsuits all ready for this weekend - I'll be back in Bristol on Saturday and Hitchin on Sunday.  Details below!

Website & this weekend

Well after a day off for the royal wedding and a trio of fairs; I've been busy this (very short!) week buying new stock.  I have a whole heap of summer tops, blouses and maxi dresses galore! 

I also found an ammaazing 1960's Arkana chair today (I'm just disappointed there was only one) but it's sitting happily in the corner of my living room at the mo (pics to follow very soon) and will shortly be up on the website.  Speaking of which - that's the other thing that's kept me busy this week.  The website is getting there!  I will have a whole section for some very affordable mid century furniture and homeware.  The storage unit is filling up again and I want to get some of these lovely items online as soon as possible.

So if you fancy a look....   http://ohsoretrovintage.co.uk/  I've also updated the list of fairs and events coming up.



Oh, and this weekend I'll be at a fair in Kingston, Surrey.  Details below.  See you there!
